Deutsche Post DHL reports four operating segments; these are managed independently by the responsible segment management bodies in line with the products and services offered and the brands, distribution channels and customer profiles involved. Components of the entity are defined as a segment on the basis of the existence of segment managers with bottom-line responsibility who report directly to Deutsche Post DHL’s top management.
The Consolidation column and the Corporate Center/Other collective segment are reported separately. The latter segment comprises the activities of Global Business Services (GBS), the Corporate Center and other areas. The activities concerned are composed of non-operating activities and other business activities. The profit/loss generated by GBS is allocated to the operating segments, whilst its assets and liabilities remain with GBS (asymmetrical allocation).
The main geographical areas in which the Group is active are Germany, Europe (excluding Germany), the Americas, Asia Pacific and Other regions. External revenue, non-current assets and capex are disclosed for these regions.
Revenue, assets and capex are allocated to the individual regions on the basis of the domicile of the reporting entity. Non-current assets primarily comprise intangible assets, property, plant and equipment, and other non-current assets.
The allocation of assets to segment assets and of liabilities to segment liabilities between the MAIL division and Corporate Center/Other was modified for reasons of transparency. The prior-year figures were adjusted accordingly.
Additionally, goodwill of €–114 million arising from a previous intragroup transaction was reclassified from Corporate Center/Other to Consolidation. The adjustment did not affect the amounts presented for the operating segments. The prior-year figures were adjusted accordingly.
In the previous year, the management structure of Williams Lea Germany changed as at 1 July 2010. The reason for this was the many strategic and operational links between the MAIL division and Williams Lea Germany. Significant parts of Williams Lea Germany were therefore reclassified from the SUPPLY CHAIN division to MAIL. The prior-year figures were adjusted accordingly.
